Rainwater recycling means that you use rainwater instead of
expensive tap water for several household tasks.
It is not that difficult. You buy a rainwater tank, install
it somewhere in the ground and make a connection with the gutter.
After a while the tank will be filled with rainwater. It
is perfect to use it inside and outside. You need a pump. The
rainwater has to be driven from the tank to several taps.

unpleasant fragrance to the water. To prevent regular cleaning, we
advise installing a rainwater filter.
